                Because we are offering to purchase $100,000,000, or 66.6%, of the $150,000,000 aggregate principal amount of the Notes outstanding, on the early settlement date we are limited to accepting 66.6%, or approximately $41.9 million aggregate principal amount, of the Notes tendered at or prior to the Early Tender Deadline.  In addition to the consideration described above, accrued and unpaid interest up to, but not including, the early settlement date will be paid in cash on all validly tendered and accepted Notes.  Subject to the satisfaction or waiver by us of conditions to the offer, we expect that the Early Settlement Date will be on or before Wednesday, October 27, 2010.

Certain of the statements in the immediately preceding paragraphs, particularly anticipating future performance, business prospects, growth and operating strategies and similar matters and those that include the words “could,” “should,” “believes,” “anticipates,” “expects,” and “estimates,” or similar expressions constitute “forward-looking statements.”  For those statements, ISC claims the protection of the safe harbor for forward-looking statements contained in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. There can be no assurance that the forward-looking statements will be accurate because they are based on many assumptions, which involve risks and uncertainties.  ISC previously disclosed in response to Item 1A to Part I of its report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended November 30, 2009 certain important factors that could cause its actual results to differ from expectations.  These forward-looking statements are made only as of the date thereof, and ISC undertakes no obligation to update or revise the forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as otherwise required by law.
